The purpose of the defaultfont is to reduce the amount of parameters when using the text tag. Text labels after a defaultfont tag, in the theme file, will use the default parameters if the label has unspecified parameters. The default is ignored if the text label has its own values. You don't need to specify all font parameters. Multiple defaultfont tags are allowed. Any previous defaults will be deleted.

defaultfont shadow=2 color=255,0,0
text x=0 y=0 value="test"
defaultfont font="times" fontsize=10 color=255,0,0
text x=0 y=40 value="test" font="arial"
text x=0 y=80 value="test" color=0,0,0

<group>, </group>

Items can be grouped together with the group tag. This will make it easier to move several items and at the same time keep the distances to each other. It is possible to have groups in groups.

x - Horizontal position of the group's upper left corner.

y - Vertical position of the group's upper left corner.

<group> x=20 y=20
text x=0 y=0 value="test1"
text x=10 y=10 value="test2"
</group> x=20 y=20


Themes can be loaded from inside a theme using the theme tag. It is possible to create a theme that only loads other themes.
